Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 33:15

_ _ In contrast to the trembling “sinners in Zion” (Isaiah 33:14), the righteous shall be secure amid all judgments; they are described according to the Old Testament standpoint of righteousness (Psalms 15:2; Psalms 24:4).

_ _ stoppeth ... ears ... eyes — “Rejoiceth not in iniquity” (1 Corinthians 13:6; contrast Isaiah 29:20; Psalms 10:3; Romans 1:32). The senses are avenues for the entrance of sin (Psalms 119:37).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 33:13-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 33:15

He — Who is just in all his dealings. From hearing — Who will not hearken to any counsels, tending to shed innocent blood. From seeing — That abhors the very sight of sin committed by others, and guards his eyes from beholding occasions of sin.
